5 Live Music Musts: Friday, May 31st

Friday, May 31, 2013

 

Best known as vocalist for the SNL band under GE Smith, Christine Ohlman is bringing country, soul, and rock and roll to the Knickerbocker this weekend.

Well summer is finally here, and the live music scene heating up…

So stay near the beaches on Saturday night June 1 to see the “Beehive Queen” Christine Ohlman at The Knickerbocker in Westerly. Ohlman is best known as vocalist for the SNL band under G.E. Smith. Her music is full of country, soul, and rock and roll. Tickets are $10 – Show at 9:00 PM.

Also on Saturday, Providence rock & rollers Northern Lands will be celebrating the release of their debut album “He Took A Dive” at The Met in Pawtucket with Cactus Attack, Viking Jesus and The Mallett Brothers Band opening up the show. Show starts at 8pm, tickets are $8 in advance and $10 the day of the show.

This week we extend our range into the world of classical music. RIPCO, the Rhode Island Philharmonic Community Orchestra, is performing its final concert of the year at the Lincoln School on Sunday at 3:00 PM. This is also the final performance for Conductor John Eells, who is re-locating to the west coast. The program features well known works from Berlioz and Tchaikovsky, and includes several solos from orchestra members. Tickets are $5 for students, and $15 for adults.

Sunday night brings Rock icon Dave Davies to the Narrows Center for the Arts in Fall River. Among the greatest guitarists of all time, Davies founded The Kinks and is well known for his riffs including the two chord intro to You Really Got Me. Davies is appearing with a full band; expect to hear the classics along with newer material. This is a rare chance to see a living legend – this show will sell out – don’t miss him!  Show is at 8:00 - $48 in advance.

Sunday also features a benefit in Providence for the leukemia stricken David Lamb. He is best known as the lead singer, guitarist and kick drummer for Warren, RI duoBrown Bird. The benefit, first of many to come, is at Dusk in Providence, with a rare performance from The Devil, My Pocket's Tim Hiles along with Haunt The House, Dylan Sevey & The Gentlemen, The Brother Kite, The Silks and The Denver Boot. It should be an awesome show. Doors open at 8pm and there's a $1-Up donation at the door.
